Following the sad sale of my boat had my first beach fish (excluding lure fishing) for years on Saturday night.

Forgot what hauling tons of weed was like on a beachcaster!!!

On the positive side, actually really enjoyed it and caught loads of Whiting with keepers amongst them (now fish cakes)!!
In fact there were so many that I was getting double shots on Pennel rigs most casts.

Unfortunately no cod.......anyone else do any good on the beach front with cod........no gloating from you boaters!!

Cheers

Trouble is when there are loads of whiting about the codling don't really get a look in. I have heard though that the cod population is now improving again so we should see some eventually.

Very true Eccles, they were like Pirahna!!!

On the optimistic side though, they form part of the food chain so hopefully where there are lots of Whiting you would hope there might be a cod or two.......might try a big bait on one rod next time that's a bit more resilient to the attentions of the Whiting....or alternatively the 'hair rig' theory with a small hook attached to a large hook in the hope of snaring a small Whiting and leave it out there for a while to see what it tempts!?
